who had ordered a gun through the mail. and martin luther king jr., by somebody who got their gun the same way. in 1968, in terms of robert f. kennedy being killed, we passed the 1968 gun control act, which up to that point was the strictest gun control we had had. one thing it did was restrict getting it through the mail. when they say things like you have to protect guns in your home against somebody mentally ill, that is an incentive to do the sane and obvious thing, and restrictions on gun dealers, not to sell ammunition over the internet, the way that the shooter in aurora bought their ammunition. >> so by their logic, right, i mean, it is really disgusting. so by their logic, are they saying schools are also drug-free zones, so basically we should let junkies come up and shoot up in the school yard? if we get through gun-free zones, drug-free -- the logic is ridiculous. it shows they're losing support, all the polls show it within their movement, outside their movement, and they know it is a death knell to fight this, the parents, the victims, the people who survived this gu

of 1968 that gave him that power was passed in the wake of robert kennedy and martin luther king. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of spefblg weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distin
